WORK OUT REGIME:
Workout is an integral part in any weight loss process, as it helps in losing weight, gain stamina and tone up your body. If you try to lose weight only by diet, then you will find that your weight might reduce but in the longer run you will also face issues like flabby skin, stretch marks etc.
Kajol made a good workout regime critical in her weight loss journey; therefore she was able to successfully shed so much weight in such small amount of time. Mrs Devgn, worked tirelessly with her trainer to target the burning of the fat areas and the strengthening of the core muscles of her body. Kajol increased the intensity of her workout daily and pushed herself to improve her performance. The Bollywood beauty includes various forms of workouts like yoga, squats, as well as lifts in her whole wellness regime. She can easily handle 150 pounds and in an intense muscle toning and calorie burning exercise known as ‘dead lift’ she handles more pounds. The super mom can also handle about 300 push-ups very easily.
Following Kajol’s suite is highly beneficial. But don’t try to do as much as she does, you need to start small before you handle such weights. If you employ a trainer, then he or she will plan a well-balanced and healthy workout regime for you.
THE RIGHT DIET:
Some feel that with the right workout they will not have to watch their diet, whereas others feel that extreme diet will help in shedding that extra weight. However, both these notions are misguided because diet is something that is essential to the whole weight reduction process, as the right diet provides nourishment as well as strength to your body for a good workout and a healthy lifestyle.
